East Swansea Hawks!
We would like to invite you along to an information evening regarding girls opportunities in the community. A parents evening will take place on Monday 12th June 2017, 6-7pm at Bonymaen RFC.
The Hawks has been a massive success across the ospreys region and we would like to make sure that it is as much of a success in Bonymaen and we need your support in doing so.
Hawks Cluster Centre’s were set up to break down perceptions and barriers around girls rugby and allow female to experience the wonderful sport in a fun, friendly and safe environment. Girls have an option of taking part in non contact or contact if they would like from the ages of 6-15. The sessions are based around what the girls want and their voice along with the communities need to be listened to.
In your community you have to pleasure of welcoming some of the Wales Women International Rugby team, who are amazing role models and will be supporting with sessions and offering the girls a chance to ask questions and learn from them
We also have a campaign that will be starting in June called #BRINGABESTIE where the girls are encouraged to bring a friend from which they will receive friendship bands and be entered into a draw for prizes.
Please come along on Monday with your children, to find out more. We really appreciate your time.

Years 4 and 5 will be off on their residential visit to Borfa again next month, where they will have the opportunity to experience a range of activities including rock hopping, surfing, climbing and bog snorkelling to name but a few! We will also be running our annual visit to Llangrannog in partnership with the Urdd, and will have residential visits for Year 3 in the Spring Term and Year 6 in the Summer Term. We pride ourselves on the range of residential opportunities that we offer our pupils. To my knowledge, we offer some of the highest number of residential opportunities for Primary aged pupils in South West Wales. As you may be aware, staff volunteer their time without pay to enable us to run these visits, and I would like to take this opportunity in advance to say a huge thank you to them for the extra time and commitment that they give to our pupils.
We believe that homework provides you with an important opportunity to engage with your child in their learning, as well as offering further opportunities for children to practice what they have been learning in school. Our research has shown that where parents support their pupils at home on a regular basis, the pupils achieve markedly better than those pupils who do not receive the support. Supporting your child at home includes listening to them read regularly, ensuring that they learn their tables and spellings, and helping them to complete set pieces of homework on time. If you would like support in doing this, Mrs Wells runs a weekly club every Tuesday after school where parents can support their children in school to do their homework, access resources such as iPads, printers, the internet etc. and find out more about the way we teach specific things such as addition or reading. We have tried to ensure that the frequency and amount of homework that we give is manageable and appropriate, and in line with what you said you wanted, so that it can be carried out to a high standard, and reinforce learning. Please help your child as much as you can to achieve the best that they can!
